Don't forget to post a comment to be eligible to win BLOG CANDY. I'm giving away a pair of brand new, in the box (NIB) Cutter Bee scissors, utterly perfect for crafting. And if you missed my posting from Days 1 and 2, I combined them onto one posting so hit "Older Post" at the bottom right of this blog to see the weekend's work.
This is the card I made for Day #3 of Jennifer's hop:
"Wishing you a one-of-a-kind-birthday."
Perfect greeting for those of us who create one-of-a-kind cards!
For this card, I cut strips of coordinating paper 1/4" wide, and wove them to create the backdrop for the bow and greeting. After I was done weaving and to hold them together, I machine stitched the border. I cut turquoise paper into really thin slices (less than 1/16") and curled it over a dowel to make the cute curly-ques.
I made the stick pins using beading findings. Do you need a tutorial on these?
The greeting was stamped, cut and inked, and pop-dotted.
